I, like you, have spent a disproportionate percentage of my life on college campuses. Through my work, I have spent time on literally hundreds of campuses around the country and even abroad. Each campus is unique, each has its own personality, each has things that make it special and set it apart from the crowd. But one thing remains constant across virtually every campus I have visited … parking is a pain.
It is not uncommon for a college campus to have less than one parking space for every ten students. Add faculty and staff, visitors, and vendors to that equation and it is easy to see why a parking is among the top complaints and concerns on campus today. Multimillion dollar parking garages, land grabs, and restrictive policies are common fixes though it can be argued that such attempts are band-aids rather than solutions. Can a solution be found in technology? And does the campus card play a role? Some think the answer to both of these questions is yes.
Validating people, not plastic, sounds good on paper and is, in fact, one of the reasons cited by some colleges and universities for controlling building access-primarily dorms, or sororities/fraternities-with biometric hand readers.
